Could I be held liable in this situation?
I just bought a house in Lansing, MI. Let's say I have a couple friends over and provide some beers. I tell them that they are free to stay in the spare room if they drink too much so they don't drive home. one of them decides to drive intoxicated and gets into an accident causing injury. Could I be held liable for this? Using the same scenario, could I be held liable if they provided their own alcohol?
Could you, yes. But so called "dram shop" liability laws are seldom enforced but still I would urge caution. Once you...

I am not a civil attorney, but I believe you could be liable both civilly and criminally if people consume alcohol at...

How will I be penalized for driving with a permit at 18
I'm 18 year old and I live in Michigan. My drunk friend was stranded last night a some random person house so I wasn't thinking and went and picked her up. I'm still in high school and I'm a good kid, I know what I did was beyond wrong because I could have endangered myself and someone else but I wasn't thinking clearly when my friend was asking to be picked up. I know that my excuse still doesn't validate my reason for driving without a license but I only had good intentions. I'm nervous because I've never been in a situation like this before. I was then pulled over by a cop and he gave me a citation for driving with a permit. I have a drivers test scheduled in a couple of days, should I even bother going anymore? What will happen to me and what is my best option?
This should be in the Traffic Forum and I will directed it there for you. I would still go ahead and take the test....
Can I be drug tested for my disability hearing
I am scheduled for disability hearing next month. Is it possible that I would be requested to submit to drug screen?
You should resubmit your question to the social security/disability forum.
If I get a high BAC charge lowered to a OWI in Michigan, will the driver's license penalties also go down?
I blew a .18, and I'm being charged with a high BAC. I'm hoping to get that knocked down to an OWI. I know the drivers license restrictions are much harsher with a high BAC conviction. But if my charge gets lowered to a OWI, does that mean the drivers license restrictions get lowered too or is that a separate issue altogether?
Yes. A high BAC (Superdrunk) has much longer and restrictive sanctions on your drivers license. Reduced hard suspension...
Tested on last day of probation?
Hi, I have been on probation for 3 months. My PO said I'd be off Sept 1st, which is today as long as my last test was clean, and said she'd call if it wasn't. I never got a call and today is my "supposed" last day, legally can I still get tested? There is no appointment with her nor is there a court hearing. I go to JAMS and call every morning, if I call and they say I can't be tested today could I still somehow get tested? I heard it's illegal to be tested on the last day by PO unless it is court ordered. And the only court ordered tests are random twice a month at a lab.
Unless you probation officer filed a violation report or filed papers to extend your probation, prior to September 1,...
